Hello from Vancouver!  Apparently I don’t know how to sit still, but luckily I’m able to take my work with me when I travel.  And the rain here gives me a perfect excuse to sit inside and blog.

Sherry & Mina were married on a gorgeous August day, and their wedding had lots of eye candy for me! Sherry’s dress was absolutely stunning, and the reception at the Oasis Centre was glamorous and fun!  One of my favourite moments was the priest pulling out his phone in the middle of the ceremony to take a photo of the newlyweds…technology has sure changed how we get married!  I’m fortunate enough that Sherry lives just up the street from me, so it made my commute in the morning really easy 😉 and in fact my neighbours are family of hers so I knew a few people at the wedding!  Sherry & Mina, thank you so much for choosing me as your photographer, you were fantastic to work with, and I hope you enjoy this sneak peek!  Shout out to my second shooter Jesse, and videographer Steve… they always keep me laughing.

I was first introduced to Coleen & Glenn through their niece/wedding planner Jolene, and I remember from our first meeting being really excited for their wedding.  Coleen & Glenn have found a beautiful love together a little bit later in life, and have now joined together along with her two daughters and his two sons to create a new family.  The wedding, although ‘low-key’ was absolutely gorgeous, with a lot of special details, and nothing left unaccounted for.  Coleen & Glenn’s private lake property is a stunning retreat outside of the city and a remarkable location for their wedding.  Glenn poured a lot of hard work into making sure the grounds of the property were immaculate, and it was a pleasure to shoot there.

We were lucky enough to have the chance to do most of the portraits prior to the ceremony because the skies opened up a little bit!  To Coleen & Glenn’s credit, they didn’t let it faze them, and went ahead with their outdoor ceremony on the dock of their lake. Nothing a few umbrellas couldn’t fix!  Then guests were treated to an intimate tented reception with mouth-watering BBQ.  Coleen & Glenn threw a fantastic party, and it was really cool to see their children and friends celebrating along with them.  The live band and the rustic decor created a truly magical and cozy atmosphere.

Thank you so much, Coleen & Glenn, for choosing me to celebrate your union with you, and thanks to Tessa for second shooting with me!

– Haley

Amy and Kim are so happy together that they kept smiling for the pictures the entire time.

Amy had spent much of her youth wandering around in forests like this, so she was completely at ease, even pointing out a section where she didn’t want to cross into because of the stinging nettles!

I can’t wait to shoot your wedding!

I love it when a couple dresses to match their surroundings. Courtney and Gurjeet wanted their engagement photos to be taken in a downtown setting and they arrived to the photo shoot dressed for a night on the town. I am sure that you will agree that they look positively stunning!

To quote one of the reception speeches, Kiran found the best thing that you could possibly find at Home Depot!

These two lovebirds met in the lumber aisle there, and the rest was history. I first met Kiran at her cousin Sam’s wedding last year, and after she saw the photos she called me to shoot her wedding to Kyle! Kiran is the definition of a bubbly personality, and Kyle is the perfect complement to her.  He’s goofy, and constantly smiling.  They were just a delight to work with.

Unfortunately I was already booked for the first of the two wedding days, but luckily we have an amazing team, and Melissa stepped in as an associate shooter for us to shoot the ceremony day (with awesome second shooter Grace!).  The girls did an amazing job, and we’re looking forward to expanding the team to having some more associate shooters in the future!

This wedding was all about family and friends, and Kiran and Kyle have a HUGE group of supporters who are overjoyed about their marriage.  The joining of these two families was a really cool thing to experience.

Jasman and Rajveer have a great energy together. Usually I try to keep my couples at ease during their photo shoot, especially if it is their first time in front of the camera.  These two were totally easy going! They wanted pictures in a natural setting, so I took them to the ravine that I regularly walk through. It was a bit more “natural” than they had bargained for (we came across a few ants), but they took it in stride and we get some great pictures. Stay tuned for their wedding pictures in the coming weeks!

Joanne was born in Edmonton. Her husband Mathew was born in San Jose, California. She met him through mutual friends when they were teenagers and he visited here. However, they lost touch and didn’t meet again until he visited here a couple of years ago. They quickly hit it off and now they are husband and wife!

The wedding was gorgeous. From her getting ready at Mousy Brown’s, to the ceremony at the Evangel Pentacostal Assembly, to the reception at the Delta Edmonton South Hotel.

The families are full of talented musicians. Every few minutes during the ceremony a different duo of family members would get up to play piano, sing, or play guitar.

I had a wonderful day with you and your friends and family, Joanne and Mathew. Congratulations on starting your new life together with your wedding in Edmonton and your move to California.

Mariah & Nathan’s wedding was luxurious, romantic, sophisticated and fun!

When I first met Mariah and her mom, we connected immediately and I couldn’t wait for Mariah and Nathan’s Hotel Macdonald Wedding.  The couple thought of everything to make sure their guests had a fantastic time, including an outdoor cocktail reception following the ceremony, hip hop dance entertainment at the reception, and held their wedding at one of the most beautiful locations in Edmonton. Mariah even had three different dresses!

Not only are these two gorgeous, but very comfortable in front of the camera as well, and we had an amazingly easy time during photos.

It was wonderful working with some of my favourite vendors for this wedding, every detail was immaculately planned by Jennifer Bergman Weddings. There is a lot that happens behind the scenes on a wedding like Mariah & Nathan’s, and having a professional planner like Jennifer is essential to make sure that everything runs on time, and that everyone can focus on enjoying their day!

Kaila and Peter are both teachers. They wanted their wedding to reflect that. There was a lot of work put into the details at the ceremony and the reception. The theme flowed through the stacks of books lining the aisles at the church, to the custom embossed pencils with their name and wedding date, to the book stacks on each table.

Kaila and Peter were easy going and relaxed on the wedding day. Any students who get either of them as teachers are lucky. Their wedding was elaborate, but it went off without a hitch, thanks in no small part to Jennifer Kinal of Fresh Look Event Management.

Kim & Kyle’s wedding fell on one of the hottest days of the summer! Ever since their engagement session with me last fall, I knew that their wedding was going to be romantic and relaxed.  There were a few familiar faces at this wedding as well, which always makes me feel right at home!  My awesome second shooter Krista and I really had a fantastic time with Kim, Kyle, and their whole bridal party.  Pretty much everyone had K in their name, in fact the bridal party was mostly made up of Kyles!

Those of you who know me may know that I’m don’t consider myself to be a particularly religious person.  My faith is something that I have questioned and explored, and I can’t say that I’ve come up with a definitive answer on what I believe in.  I joke that I go to church every weekend, I just go to a different one, and mostly on Saturdays!  I’ve had the unique opportunity to experience all different types of religions and faiths on this job, and see a lot of different wedding ceremonies.  Kim and Kyle’s wedding ceremony was at the Edmonton Moravian Church, and it was my first time there. What I loved about their ceremony was how personal it was.  I always appreciate when I go to a ceremony that is very focused on who the bride and groom are as a couple, and how their faith, family, and community has contributed to their relationship.  Their ceremony in particular just felt so warm and happy!  Despite the crazy heat, it was really enjoyable to experience and there were lots of laughs.

My warmest congratulations to Kim & Kyle, you two are so sweet together and it was a pleasure to be a part of your wedding!
